Rhinoplasty, aka nose job, is one of the most difficult procedures in plastic surgery. The surgeon is not only manipulating soft tissue and skin, but having to deal with cartilage, bone, and the functional components of the nose. It is important that when performing cosmetic nose surgery that function is at the very least preserved if not improved.
A good rhinoplasty is said to not be seen in the nose, but in the eyes. Rhinoplasty should be natural and not look operated or “done”. Nose surgery should lead to a nose that does not distract attention from features such as the eyes, hair, cheeks, and lips.
When looking for a rhinoplasty surgeon it is important to understand how many rhinoplasties or nose jobs that surgeon has performed and view that surgeon’s rhinoplasty before and after photographs.
